Review: Well I ordered my Red to Black A1 from www.fixmyangel.com a MT website and it came to me with a help kit or a Guage set. I used the A1 for the 1st time today (date is above on the post).

Accuracy
You really cannot rate a gun on its accuracy as it will change depending on your paint to bore match. The gun comes with a bore kit but the bores are for European sized paint wich is just a little bigger than the sizes in America. WDP did release a barrel kit for the A1 though.

Stock - .691, 693 and 695 with a 14 inch tip.
Upgrade - .683, 685 and 587 with a 16 inch tip.


Speed
Most guns today will shoot well over 20bps but with tournaments limiting people to 15bps does it really matter. Over a bps counter I was easily hitting about 14 and I haven't tuned the trigger for myself yet.

Size and Weight
Its tiny and for an Angel it is ridiculously light.

Technology
This marker is insane. First of all it does not use little lights to control it, you have an OLED display screen which tell you everything about the gun very easily. There is a USB plug in the board that will allow you to upgrade the gun whenever WDP releases an update for it. The board is so programmable that you will never need an upgrade board. You are able to change the amount the gun ramps, the speed you have to mantain to start the ramp and the speed you have to mantain to drop out from the ramp. The trigger is very changeable, all you have to do is put in an allen key and change the way the trigger is placed.


Maintenance
Very simple all you have to do is open the roto breach and clean it and the barrel. You need to lube the bolt with the supplied love juice. That's all you need to do.

Looks
Its an ANGEL. In one word: PHENOMENAL


Bad Parts
Make sure that you have the Generation 2 parts. Make sure that you match the paint type well on the modes eg. Fragile, Medium and Hard. Make sure all of these are in the right place and then you will have perfect marker. Of course since its an Angel, you will always have people to use your marker. Requires a Low Pressure Tank.
Conclusion: End of the day this is a great marker that shoots well with minor tweaking, but because the marker is a little difficult to tune and the barrels are a wee bit big in bore size I have to take 1 point away and since nothing is perfect, but this is damn close, I would give it an 8.5, but I'll round it up. Please rate this review and I will update it after I have used it a little more.

Yes you can, you just wont shoot as accurate. If anything, if you use crappy paint, at least you won't get barrel breaks.
